The EverRibbon Coupon Deal

Hi! Thank You for visiting my blog. The special discount was created to help raise money for my Mom's Breast Cancer treatments. We're hoping to raise enough money to send her to the Cancer for Hope Institute in Mexico. I've set up a Breast Cancer Ribbon page for her, which allows people to view her cause and make donations. 

If you make a $10 donation to my Mom's EverRibbon,  Ma's EverRibbon
I'll create a 50% coupon code for you to use at my shop, Weeds. The coupon is a one time use and applies to your entire purchase. 

The EverRibbon website sends the money to a Wepay account for Jessica Christensen (my Mom). There is a 3.5% fee, so when you enter the donation amount, the site will notify you of the fee before you submit. This is a completely safe website to donate through that operates entirely with the best encryption and safety precautions.

Vintage Bead Yard Sale was Successful!

So, on my last post, I was trying to sell my vintage beads in one big lot. That didn't go over well, so I decided to sell all the beads at my yard sale. Which went over wonderfully! I made about $500 on selling my vintage beads. I highly recommend having a yard sale. Yes, I had other items too, some clothing and my highest priced item was a camera for $20, but the majority of money came from selling the beads. I've already started another pile for next years sale.

The findings like charms and such didn't sell as well as I thought. Next year, I'll spend less time on sorting findings and more time individual bead lots.
